How best to reduce downtime when updating window server.
Hello James J Khan, There are two strategies that can be used in this scenerios are failover and load balancing. For a failover pair with one active and one standby node, if the first node goes down, then the other one start to work on. For intelligent load balancing, the traffic is shared between multiple nodes and downed hosts.
